Bumble and bumble Prepares to Release New Damage Repair Products

TEASED, TUGGED, FRIED, DYED... YOU’VE HURT YOUR HAIR. NOW, IT’S TIME TO SAY SORRY.

Did you know a strand of hair is stronger than a copper wire of the same diameter? Or that it's one of the fastest growing tissues in the human body, second to bone marrow?

We owe a lot to our hair, especially for those of us that regularly color, curl, flat-iron and tease. It's a miracle hair is still attached to our head, after all the ups and downs and trouble we put it through. 

Even with split ends, tangles, or dryness, hair is resilient. No matter how much we mistreat it and damage it further, our hair stays with us. We owe a lot to our tresses for this- and should make up for the chaos we inflict on it. Masques and treatments restore moisture and shine to the hair, but what can be used to reverse all types of heat damage and normal wear and tear?

Bumble and bumble has long carried products tailored specifically to damaged hair. Various Bumble masques, complexes, and leave-in treatments provide relief to even the most unfortunate heads of hair. Nevertheless, Bumble is set to release two new damage repair products that stand out from the rest: Save the Day and While You Sleep. The most intensive repair products yet, Save the Day and While You Sleep are super versatile and are suitable for every hair type.

Save the Day is intended to be used during the daytime, and is a lightweight fluid/serum that repairs hair and split ends, protects against heat and UV damage, and hydrates and smooths flyaways and frizz. Save the Day should be applied to damp hair before drying- easy as that! You'll have instantly softer, smoother, healthier-looking and feeling hair. Getting around-the-clock repair could not be more simple.

While You Sleep, as you guessed, is an overnight restorative masque that helps reverse the appearance of damaged hair. This super-nourishing treatment repairs past damaged and prevents against any future abuse. By morning, hair will feel silky-smooth and de-stressed. Both of these products are perfect for any excess color clients, frequent stylers, and people who spend a lot of time under the sun or in air-polluted metropolitan areas. 

Save the Day and While You Sleep are both lightweight, multi-benefit products formulated with camellia oil and antioxidants for advanced hair repair. Achieving revived, healthy hair can't be any easier. Bumble and bumble is releasing these products in the coming weeks, however Citrine will have them in early for retail purchase. Both are free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. We are currently accepting pre-orders! Call to get started on the ultimate hair repair or stop in to pick up your own. 


Bumble and bumble has outdone themselves again!

Welcome the two new additions to the Sumo family: Sumoclay and Sumogel!

Sumoclay solves your limp, dull hair problems in one little jar! It is a light weight styling product that adds texture, definition, and bulk. It should be applied on dry hair only as it adds shape and detail. This product is ideal for all hair types, including fine-to-medium hair to add body and texture.

Sumogel eliminates the flaky 90s gel style! This styling product is a crystal clear, solid gel that does not crunch or flake. Giving your hair that natural shine and clean finish it deserves! Sumogel is best used on wet hair and combed into place. With its innovative Micro-Emulsion Structure technology, you get that shine without any heavy silicones!
